Couldn't be happier for Romeo Okwara '16 -- who is battling to earn a spot on the Giants 53 man roster even though he was overlooked in the NFL Draft.
The 21 year-old already has an Accounting Degree in hand from Notre Dame -- let's hope he can hold off that profession for a few years!

Fox Sports' Colin Cowherd speaks to what makes Notre Dame different -- to that I say, what's wrong with being different!
He also goes on to say ND football is "not a top ten coaching destination" --- this is the same guy that said this just a couple of weeks ago about our program: 8 GLOBAL SPORTS BRANDS.
